I am a volunteer with KlezCalifornia, a non-profit that promotes participatory Yiddish culture and klezmer music in the Bay Area. We are planning a Yiddish Culture Festival with Congregation Etz Chayim in Palo Alto for next Presidents’ Day Weekend, February 12-15, 2010. It will be an entire weekend of Yiddish culture and klezmer music, for all ages, musicians and non-musicians, Yiddish speakers and non-speakers. Emphasize whatever might interest this person or organization.
Who in your organization is the right person to talk with about getting this Festival on your calendar (or “letting your members/students/families/participants know about this Festival”)?
We are very excited that this Yiddish Culture Festival is coming to the South Bay and would like to find a way that your organization can participate.
Is there one person who should be our contact with your organization?
We would like to make sure this is a community-wide event. Can you commit to not planning any big events that weekend?
Can you agree not to plan any Yiddish or klezmer-related events that weekend that might conflict with the Festival?
How can we publicize the Festival to your members/students/families/participants? Can we add the Festival to your events calendar? Can we put a notice in your newsletter?
(see Organization Contact Report for all the info we need on each organization)
